If you’re like me, sifting through the health care reform garbage is like opening all the Hefty bags stored on top at the county landfill. Who knows what crap you’ll find next.
Everybody, it seems, has some version of the truth or some kind of spin on the proposals at hand. And some politicians or talking suits on TV are — hold on to your hats — just plain liars.
Say it ain’t so!
The St. Petersburg Times in Florida for its online edition came up with PolitiFact. It goes through some of the claims made by Democrats and Republicans concerning health care reform and supplies a true or false detector.
So if you’re confused over all the misleading information now in large supply, this might help you out.
Or maybe not.
